Review: Neve Elegantissimi Palette

So, about two weeks ago I was lucky enough to win the giveaway that The Black Pearl Blog hosted for Beauty Chamber.  It was to spend £25 on their site, I know, super lucky!  Anyway, I picked a Neve Pastello lip liner in Crimson (will review separately) and the Neve Elegantissimi palette.

One of the most amazing things about this, they told me on the Friday I'd won, I said what I wanted on Friday afternoon, and while I was laying in bed sleeping on Saturday morning (they very next day!) the postman rang the doorbell with the parcel, now that's fast delivery/service!

The lovely prizes (reviews on the lip liner to come!)

Beautiful shades!!!!

They say "The Elegantissimi palette from Neve Cosmetics contains 10 professional, pressed, neutral eye shadow shades. Classic shades make this palette a basic must have. Vitamin enriched shades created to define and enhance the eyes. The velvety texture gives a high colour pay off, and may be used wet or dry.  The pans are removeable and repositionable as the palette is magnetic. Refills are also available."

Top Row L-R - Coco, Etoile, Butterfly, Bonbon, Noisette

Bottom Row L-R - Smoking, Peluche, Croissant, Espresso, Black Sheep

My Thoughts

It's worth noting two main things about this palette.  One, the pigmentation is beyond amazing, really really high concentration of it.  Secondly, you get a lot of product for your money 3g in each pan to be precise.  Compare that to an MUA 12 shade palette where you get a total of 9g in the entire palette!

About half these shades are pretty matte, the rest have a soft satin sheen to them, nothing over the top or super glittery (Peluche is the most sparkly).

Special mention to the second to last shade (Espresso) too, to give yourself a fairly intense smoky eye, 2-3 dabs of a crease brush onto this is more than enough - don't even bother stroking the brush over it, you'll have way too much product, with these, a little goes a long way.

They last pretty well too.  As usual I always wear an eye shadow primer (usually NARS) under my shadow,  and they lasted as well as any other shadow I've tried.  I had my usual creasing on my right eye after lunch time, but the intensity of the colours didn't fade.  This really has become a bit of a go-to palette for me.  A certain stable in my collection.

It's also worth noting that Neve use no silicones, glycerin, parabens or petrolatum.  Formula works both wet & dry,  non-comedogenic.  Cruelty free, tested on makeup artists, not on animals.  And suitable for vegans :)

Where to find it: Beauty Chamber
Cost: £21.95
Would I repurchase: Hell yes!  Worth every last penny.
